…We ‘II continue to deliver on our promise until last road is in good standing — Oyetola
… Oyetola’s outstanding performance endears him to all — Fayemi
In what appears like a season of road and infrastructure revolution in the last few weeks, the Osun State Government has once again inaugurated a network of roads in the State.
The immediate past Ekiti State Governor, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, inaugurated the roads on Monday in Osogbo, the State capital.
This is even as Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun restated his avowed commitment to continuously unleash infrastructure development on the State as a catalyst for the industrial revolution and part of the administration’s efforts at actualising the dream to making Osun the economic and industrial hub of the southwest.
The administration of Governor Oyetola had in the last few weeks embarked on a massive inauguration of roads across the State as part of efforts for further enhancement of the socioeconomic activities of the good people of the State.
The newly-completed roads inaugurated by Dr. Kayode Fayemi were Osogbo-Agunbelewo-Okinni-Ilobu-Ifon-Osun and Kelebe-Osogbo-Iragbiji roads.
Inaugurating the newly-completed roads, Dr. Fayemi applauded Oyetola for keeping faith with his electoral promises even in the face of daunting socio-economic challenges.
Fayemi who acknowledged the tremendous achievements of the Oyetola-led government in the State said it is worthy of note that the government has made impossible possible and turn difficulties to opportunities since assumption of office.
The former Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum who described Oyetola as a man loved by all, said his exceptional character vis-a-vis socio-political wizardry has been a veritable source of inspiration to many, most importantly his Governor colleagues.
Fayemi averred that the achievements made by Oyetola within four years of his first term would continue to be enduring legacies in the history of the State as he had set the State on the path of socioeconomic pedestal and sure footing.
He said posterity will be kind to him as he journeys through to serve the State more than ever before.
“I was very delighted when I was asked if I would be available to honour you with my presence as the Special Guest of Honour at this inauguration ceremony.
“But I said this to Mr. Governor in private, ‘You need to know how much all of our colleagues admire you so much for what we called the magic wand?’
“I know this: as the immediate past Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, we know much of this State by way of the allocation. We know the burden of what you have been carrying since you assumed office, and if we are to do a mathematical equation vis-a-vis what you have been able to deliver on infrastructure, social welfare, good governance among others, you can only be a magician because your mathematics cannot produce an appropriate answer.
“In your own case, 2 plus 2 is 10, where you have the 6 is what we called magic. I must commend your creativity, innovation and huge sacrifice.
“People will not realize it now but I can assure you that history will be kind to you; posterity will serve you right as our people will eventually go to recognize all the sacrifices you have made on their behalf.
“You have been able to demonstrate the capacity to make good governance available.
“It is not just about the kilometers of road, it is how you have been able to manage to build all the roads. I was looking at the number of roads you have constructed with zero resources and I really want to say that you are indeed a progressive and we are proud of your accomplishments in this State.
“You have also told me before I left office which I have passed on to the incumbent Governor, my successo…
